The chefs at The Farm of Beverly Hills remodel the foundation of traditional American comfort food by commingling farm fresh ingredients with contemporary recipes. The meal for two begins with the blast of an air horn and a selection of one of three appetizers, including breaded calamari frites wrapped around spicy remoulade and marinara. Pick a pair of entrees from a quartet that stars ground-turkey lasagna with two cheeses, and a chicken potpie whose crust encases a cache of braised veggies. Nostalgic desserts force diners to make a cruel choice from a trio that includes old-fashioned s’mores, which diners build over their own mini fires, complete with mini firemen for added safety.
The meal for four commences with two appetizers. Diners can topple the ahi tuna tower, which piles meaty morsels with avocado, cucumber, and crunchy wontons. The dill-pickle fried chicken plates half a free-range organic bird with a heap of truffle mac 'n' cheese, and the spaghetti squash with veggie meatballs pleases herbivores more than an all-vegetable reproduction of Animal Farm. Bread pudding gets a reboot with an infusion of coffee cake and a glaze of vanilla-bean crème anglaise.
Despite existing in three separate incarnations, The Farm provides a consistent, comfy aesthetic to go along with its rich, pacifying vittles. Diners can curl up in booths among old black-and-white photos of executive chef Hans Goplen’s family farm in Wisconsin or admire hodgepodge assortments of repurposed country knickknacks. Some of the walls are also decked with needlepoints hand-stitched by the restaurant's founder, which depict roosters and the arrival of the first chickens from outer space.
The Farm of Beverly Hills
Be it on one of The Farm's breezy outdoor patios or inside its down-home Americana-themed dining rooms, patrons today come to savor the nostalgic flavors of traditional American cuisine, just as they have since 1997. With black-and-white portraits of Wisconsin farmers adorning the walls of all three locations, fresh, seasonal ingredients are the heart and soul of The Farm of Beverly Hills' menus. Organic and locally sourced products comprise dishes whenever possible, as evident in the dill-pickle fried chicken made with a free-range and organic bird, the hearty meatloaf sandwich of certified-humane Angus beef, or original tableside magic tricks performed by Miss Piggy.
